The Gallery – Self Portait & Secret Post Club May

 The Gallery

Red Ted, by Red Ted

 I have to confess, I was hoping that the topic of “self portrait” would come up at the Gallery soon. Red Ted LOVES my iphone and at 2yrs old is pretty adept at using it. I have downloaded some games for him to play in it gives me 10 “safe” minutes to change Pip Squeak or whatever else I need to do. 

This also means, that he knows where all the photos are and how to operate the camera. Recently, I watched him trying to take a photo of himself. I-kid-you-not: he knew how to turn the phone round and that he need to press something. Incredible! The new generation of techies is here. He made several attempts. And succeeded! I present to you “Red Ted, by Red Ted!”. 

The photo is a little spooky, I know, but I am impressed!

Secret Post Club – May

I hope you don’t mind the “double post”, but as both these posts are more for me and a bit of fun, I don’t want to “bore” my subscribers with too many emails all in one go. So combined it is!

Run by Heather over at Notes From Lapland, the Secret Post Club is a friendly exchange of gifts once a month. Here is what I received:

The box arrived today, weighing a little more than my usual postal items (books, cards whatever). It looked very promising… Once the children were safely tucked up in bed for their lunchtime naps, I quickly opened the new parcel. I was greeted by the delicious sweet and delicate sent of my gift: a “Cosy Candle” from Ellen and her company Anzu Ltd.:

“The Cosy Candle – Snuggle up under a patchwork quilt wth a roaring fire. Freshened by the hint of citrus, this is a warm scent rich with woody and herbal notes on a bed sweet of amber.”

There was also a book – The Diary of a Provincial Lady. Accompanied was a beautiful card explaining that she makes both the cards and the candle, as well as a note about the book she included.

I love nothing more than curling up and reading a book and now I have a gorgeous candle to light and keep me company when I do so! (Now I just need to locate a “roaring fire”). Thank you Ellen, for your very thoughtful gifts!

  3. Two year olds and iPhones are indeed a terrifying combination, and Red Ted is a cutie, but you’re still cheating!;)

    I have a photo of me on my phone taken by my 3 year old when she grabbed my phone. She also once sent a photo of herself to her Daddy using the phone. Scary!


  5. Love both of these posts. It’s lovely to share other people’s happiness!
